Not content with having some of the fastest trains on earth, now Japan wants to make them invisible. 

Architect Kazuyo Sejima has designed a train with a reflective exterior so it blends in with the surroundings.

"The limited express travels in a variety of different sceneries, from the mountains of Chichibu to the middle of Tokyo, and I thought it would be good if the train could gently co-exist with this variety of scenery" Sejima said.

It marks the 100 year anniversary of the Red Arrow commuter train service and will use semi-transparent and mirrored panels.

The train will debut in Tokyo and is set to be rolled out in 2018. Though you might not spot it.
